Did anybody get a solid answer on this? I haven't gotten a response to my email yet.

I've not heard either. At this point I've concluded that it was changed and they messed up not noting it in red...just one step closer to being done with this state.

I would assume it is another change needed to support "other" groups and not hunters. Had it been in red the backlash would have started in May when the regs came out. Being most hunters read the seasons and saw the change there were likely few in the field.

Definitely a thing to watch for in the future. Shorter seasons has been the trend for many years, if they slipped this one by be it on purpose or accident it could well happen again.

Hmm, I wonder why that matters? Why not move the whitetail dates back to the 20th? Or, more importantly, if they are matching to the whitetail season, then why didn't they bump the end date to December 15th like it is whitetail?

These aren't whitetail units so conforming the season to a species they don't even want in these units doesn't make sense to me.  And then only doing so as to shorten the muley season (not just change opening dates)? I don't buy it personally.

 They're just chiseling away at another season.

Right on, if they were aligning the season start dates they would add the days to the end. They just took 30% of the season away.

Since I had the entiat archery tag I completely missed this change at first. I just assumed my hunting camp would be hunting swakane while I was in entiat.

Iím not sure how this got passed but I will be lobbying hard to get it back to the 21st-30th for next year
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

The season does appear to get one day longer each year for the next two 23-30 in 2022 and 22-30 in 2023

I agree. The Muley herd there is hurting a bit. But if it was really hurting they cut back on the long rifle season of 11 days vs our late hunt of 7 days.  They need to open up some more areas is what they need to do. Spread out the amount of guys. Theres more and more people doing Archery now especially with multi-season tags

Animal preservation.  Any suggestion to shorten seasons is getting the green light right now.  We wonít get it back with this commission.
